TL;DR E-courses up and running again! New format! Updated content! New Tabs and Badges! And much much more!! Link to the website at the bottom! Reading this blog post is strongly advised ;-)
On the 18th of August, EDU took a revolutionary step into the future of TAW and opened the world of MOOC’s (Massive Open Online Courses) to our fellow members of TAW. An idea that provides an online database, accessible and ready-to-use for everyone, 24/7. In only one month, the numbers rose in such an astonishing speed and got to heights we could’ve only dreamed of. Below, a graph shows you which classes were taken the most since the launch of our online courses. In total, good for 937 Students already for TAW Education Center.
Together with the Information Specialist and the just recently launched Security Awareness Test, the Online Learning Platform of TAW counts 1171 Students.
During the months September; October and November our team was busy creating and updating our online content into a brand new format. All of that according to the most recent position changes that were made by Army Command in August. (Check this link for more information or this link)
To celebrate this whole new set of courses, we created new Tabs and Badges to give out. These will distinguish the new courses from the old ones. Requirements are mentioned below.
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL PROGRESS HAS BEEN RESET. If you want to to receive the commendations below, you will have to re-read all of the content and complete the new and updated tests that go along with it!
* with the exception of the Information Specialist and Security Awareness course.
For every time you complete a class on the Openlearning website,
you will receive the EDU - Online Classes tab. The maximum amount
of the following tab to be given out is 12.
Once you have completed all 12 courses and received the tabs
that go with it. You will be granted only Online Academy Badge (Link).
A sign of great perseverance and a never ending hunger to learn!
Your feedback matters! Nobody or nothing is perfect, therefore
we invite you to give us, EDU, feedback on the Open Learning
at all times. This will allow an ever-growing, better learning experience for all of TAW!
Click here to give feedback!
To provide all members in TAW with an easy way to acces the website,
the following "University" button on the homepage will refer you to our Online Education Center
wiki-page. This wiki will provide you with everything you need to successfully use Openlearning.
With all of that said, we are happy to present to you our brand new, updated Online courses!

Thank you to all those who spent numerous hours making this happen.
YES! Finally! Congratulations gentlemen, good work. Now it's time to hit the books again. :)
Awesome work! I'm really looking forward to all our members using the Open Learning and applying for positions.
Incredible work to all..GO TEAM!
Congratulation on great work guys!
I used to have similar online courses at one company I worked at some 6 years ago and it was perfect interface for learning.
Meeting again with this concept in TAW, served as a very useful reminder what possibilities lie in such interface and I actually started a project to develop Open Learning at work for some 120 employees.
Thanks TAW ;)
@Seraphim: Glad to hear how we are bringing up good memories! Wishing you the best of luck with your project. Please let us know if there is anything we can assist you with! :-)
